About ECBACC 2023 Registration and Advertising

Greetings!


On behalf of the Board of the East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention, Incorporated (ECBACC, Inc.), it is with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC) with a reception occurring Friday, May 19, 2023, and the full convention Saturday, May 20, 2023, in Philadelphia, PA.

We will provide activities promoting literacy and creativity in youth, innovative workshops, informative panel discussions, exciting award presentations, and myriad activities. Listed below is an overview of the planned itinerary for ECBACC 2023.


East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention Reception and Kick-off

Friday, May 19, 2023, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Temple University / Student Faculty Center / 3340 North Broad Street / Philadelphia, PA 19140

Free Admission

We will honor comic book excellence by presenting the Glyph Comics Awards, which recognizes the best in comics made either by, for, or about African-descended people. While the recipients of these awards are not exclusively authors and artists of African descent, the Glyph Comics Awards does its best to honor and recognize those creators making great contributions to the African image in graphic novels, comic strips, and comic books. By doing so, we hope to encourage more diverse and high-quality work across the board and to inspire new creators to add their voices to the field.
